I'd like to thank Mary Jane Dodd for continuing to promote peace through her Flags For Peace Project (part of the International Day of Peace). I participated last year and I was thrilled to be a part of it this year, too. Maire's determined, quiet, personal path toward both inner and world peace should serve as a beacon to us all.
World peace is such a large concept that seems so hugely impossible that many people are daunted by where and how to start and often end up paralyzed by the enormity of it. If I dwelled on the particulars too much, I would probably be one of those people so, I choose to start small and work from within. I try to do things that are fair, kind, environmentally friendly, but basically small. Those things are what I am capable of doing on a daily basis but I'm convinced that they make a difference.
Peace Leaf Pendant
Sterling Silver Peace Symbol
Behind the leaf hangs a tag stamped with the word "peace" which was created by stamping the PMC3 clay with the etched brass stamp that I created when making last year's pendant.
Etched Brass Stamp
My necklace isn't finished because my silver clam shell bead tips didn't arrive in time to finish the knotted bead portion. My clasp and the chain portion will be attached when the tips arrive. I'll post an updated photo, too.
